    Nova Launcher for ICS 4.0+ is officially out of beta and available in the market.

    If you're already running Nova, just do a search in the market, then update from there. Enjoy!

    Yeah, the Prime version has some nice added features. The free version is more than sufficient for most users. Either are great options, just depends on what you're looking for.

    I think launcher now has all of the needed features - swipe gestures and unlimited customization...definitely one of the best launchers on the market!

    Updating to Prime is a great way to show support to the dev for all of his hard work!

    I don't get the hype. I don't see it as being better than other 3rd party launchers.
    I prefer having the settings button provided by go launcher instead of havingto place it in the dock or have and icon on my home screen.

    It was a nice job by the developer(s) but I just don't see it as being special.

    What are you talking about? The settings are in the app drawer.

    Go Launcher EX is the best home screen replacement in my opinion. Tons more features and it is free.

    Nova is good, but not quite up to par with Go Launcher. Just my 2.
